Possible Reason Why Cruiserweight Title Aired on 205 Live & Not MITB

According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE decided to have the Cedric Alexander vs Buddy Murphy Cruiserweight Title match take place on WWE 205 Live this week, as opposed to at Money in the Bank, because WWE wanted to run the hometown crowd angle with Alexander being that he is from North Carolina.

Meltzer also speculated that WWE does not need a Cruiserweight Title match for Money in the Bank given the PPV already boasts a stacked card with ten confirmed matches as of this writing.

In related news, the Cruiserweight Title match from WWE 205 Live this week was definitely a Match of the Year candidate and has been receiving rave reviews online. You can check out match highlights in the video player above.
